What program can I use to view the xml meta-data files? If I open them in Firefox I get this message "This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below." followed by the actual xml code.

There are a slew of xml viewers out there. You could try download.com for fancy viewers, or just use a program like notpad if you don't need extras like color coding, validation, etc. Firefox unfortunately has a few issues with xml, which make it a less than optimal viewer.

Is there supposed to be some way to view just the text in the xml files without seeing the elements?

Never mind. I did some research and found out that xml files are just used to store data. I was expecting there would be a style sheet or something help give some meaning to the meta-data.

If you look at our Text of Software section this is actually how we render the details pages for each item. What you see is just transformed xml. Eventually the whole site will work this way.
